Mathematics

mathsOur maths curriculum presents our children with daily challenges, working individually, in pairs or small groups as appropriate. We believe that a good knowledge and understanding of numeracy basics is key to children feeling confident about all aspects of mathematics. Consequently we place a high importance on basic knowledge of number and the use of mental strategies for solving problems. In the Early Years children develop basic mathematical concepts, providing them with a good foundation and ensuring natural progression into National Curriculum expectations. We actively encourage the children to know their tables at an early age and would ask for parental help in achieving this aim.

The children also benefit from the cross curricular links offered by maths and it is explored in areas such as PE, science and computing. We encourage the children to see the relevance of maths to everyday life and aim to develop a positive attitude and enjoyment of the subject in each pupil.
